If you're going to be out on the dusty plains of Black Rock you definitely need some shelter. And you may also want some privacy -- especially if you're at a strap-on-a-thon workshop.

The Beavers (yes, you're on the right path) are raising funds for a new dome for the only all women (trans inclusive) Burning Man camp: Camp Beaverton. They are also the hosts of the seven-years-and-running strap-on-a-thon workshop, as well as offer other Burning Man LGBTQA events. What is a strap-on-a-thon you ask? It's a workshop for all women to learn how to use a strap on of course!

Many of the Beavers are based in the Bay Area, and will be making the trek out to the Playa in August, hopefully with a new tent. But here's the catch, those domes don't come cheap, and at $30k they have a lot of fundraising to do. But if you're the type to want to check out the strap-a-thon -- in between dancing and hula-hooping on the desert plains -- then you may want to consider donating towards the tent.

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
